About Toddington

 

Toddington is a village and civil parish in north Gloucestershire in Tewkesbury Borough, located approx 20 km north-east of Cheltenham with a population of around 400 people. The history of the village goes right back to 1086. The Domesday Book makes reference to evidence of an early settlement in and around Toddington with a population of 130 people. There are two parts to the village, "Church Lane" near the church and  "New Town" at the crossing of the B4077 and B4632 roads.

The village, has a large church, St. Andrew's which contains the marble tombs of local nobility, the Tracy family, who variously lived at Sudeley Castle, Hailes Abbey and Toddington Manor.

The area is mainly farming country looking out to glorious hills. Much of the area around Church Lane is designated a listed Historic Garden Area and the area to the north of the B4077 sits in the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Beauty. The land to the south of the B4077 is designated a Special Landscape Area.

Since September 2015 Isbourne Valley School has been operating from one site located in the village of Didbrook. The school provides primary education and has recently been Ofsted rated as ‘Good’ under the new classification system.

The school provides a friendly environment in which children flourish.  They achieve high standards through the dedication of an excellent group of teachers and teaching assistants, with the close involvement of parents and a supportive Parent Teachers Association.

 

Toddington Manor which lies between New Town and Church Lane, and was bought by the Turner Prize-winning artist Damien Hirst in 2005.

 

Toddington railway station is the current northern terminus of the private heritage line, the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Steam Railway.

Work is underway to extend to service to Broadway.
